SPED Schools And Centers In Cebu City

One of the big issues when it comes to Special Education in Cebu City is how a large chunk of the overall population of children with special needs in the city remains undiagnosed, if not misdiagnosed. As a result, they are not given the necessary intervention and are made to succumb to the idea of living as helpless as they think they are meant to be.

Compared to a couple of years ago, the general population today is becoming a little more aware about the plight of children with special needs. However, not everyone is actively participating in the attempt to make things better for these children. Sometimes, even those who have a special child within their own homes fail to do what they are supposed to do for their own family member with special needs.

Everyone is responsible for the plight of a special child whether the said child is a family member, a neighbor, a classmate or a simple acquaintance. The largest amount of responsibility, however, lies on the parents of these special ones. After all, no one can ever provide for them than their own parents who brought them into this world. Every individual who desires to be a parent should know this. Hence, I think a basic education program about children with special needs should be incorporated in one of the requirements for a marriage license or something like that.

Since such is not available at the present time, here is a good alternative. The following is the list of local SPED schools and centers randomly located across the Queen City of the South.
